The Cricket Thread

Inspired by the cycling thread, thought I'd make one for cricket, seeing how we had a good turnout during the WC.

Lots going on in the cricket world as of now.

1) That embarrassing match fixing trial involving Pakistan being the at the center of things:

http://www.espncricinfo.com/infocus/...tml?subject=44

Seems like Pakistan has been in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons ever since 2007. The board really needs to get their **** together and do a massive house cleaning. Those days of Wasim Akram/Saeed Anwar seem like a distant memory.


2) The champions league ended recently as well. I didn't watch it, but did do some scoreboard watching.

Bummed Kolkata got booted, but they had a pretty good showing.

TBH, did not think Mumbai would win coming in as the #4 seed. Crazy number of injuries, but they just found a way to win their games. Malinga was the standout performer IMO.

3) As a Bangladeshi, I'm a huge homer, so I do follow them quite closely. Lots going on for them recently.

- Tamim Iqbal recently broke one of the most unusual ODI records:

Quote:
"Tamim Iqbal has played over 100 ODIs, (101 to be precise), batted in every ODI and actually got dismissed in every ODI. His record is absolutely an unique one.", the statisticians said.
"India's two former coaches, New Zealand's John Wright and South Africa's Gary Kirsten come close to them. Both have batted in all ODI's they have played, 149 and 185 respectively, but remained not out on few occasions-Wright on once and Kirsten on 19 times", they added.
http://www.theindependentbd.com/spor...di-record.html



- Last few months we saw a new stop for the revolving door that is the BD captaincy.

Shakib was stripped of the C in favor of Mushfiq. Hopefully they stick with him for a while.

So far, the team has played well under him, beating WI in that thrilling 20/20, and absolutely destroying them today .

WI all out for 61.

He seems to be playing well himself, carrying BD in basically every match in the series, expect for tonight.

Being a typical Aussie homer, it was basically part of my upbringing to be a Cricket fan

The NZ/Zimbabwe games so far have been so painful to watch. Can't cope with non HD sports coverage nowadays.

I'm watching it on my TV through SKY TV in New Zealand so I'm not even streaming it, it still looks rubbish.

I'm guessing though that basically all of SKY's HD equipment is probably here in NZ for the Rugby World Cup.

I watched the Ashes once, but had no clue WTF was happening. I know a little more about cricket now, but Germany basically sucks balls (at least compared to the larger, top countries), so I don't have anyone to watch, really. Plus, I am not informed about the structure of cricket and where to watch matches.

Huge cricket fan here. India made amends from their whitewashing in England.

Virat Kohli is a ****ing beast. So excited to watch him on a regular basis knowing he's only going to get better. India's middle order is set for a long long time.

The first place to start is www.cricinfo.com. You can see the current series, future series, etc.

There are some places to watch online: www.crictime.com, crichotline.com.

If India can get their bowling set, they're taking the next cup as well.

That is a huge IF. No fast bowlers coming out of there.

To think of it, same with BD. We have no good fast bowlers. ****ing 8 spinners

Rumor has it Shane Warne is making a comeback at 42. Plus he's got Liz Hurley to go home to. The man is an all-around legend.

Yeah, it's only for the big bash thing. But still, he can play cricket at an elite level at 42, and gets to motorboat Liz Hurley, I say he wins at life.

Indeed

I remember that ridiculous delivery in the Ashes.

He's looked in great shape the last couple of times I've seen him on TV, he's slimmed down big time.

What a weird game of cricket. Day starts in the first innings and ends in the fourth. Couldn't believe the scorecard when I read it after stumps.

What an epic test match between the Aussies and South Africa. After SA was bowled out for 96, I thought this was done. Then from 21 for 9, Australia did well to get to 47.

SA hanging on with a decent 81/1 at stumps. Let's see if they can win it tomorrow.
